Prolotherapy: The traditional treatment is medications and physical therapy, followed by steroid injections if therapy doesn't help. Now, steroid injection will not heal anything. In many cases of arthritis the issue is ligament weakness. Prolotherapy will strengthen the ligament and improve pain in many cases. http://otwithmd.com/what-is-prolotherapy/.
